    Every time I see her name mentioned, it's in reference to how bad an actress she is, or how she ruined this film and that film. Why? She wasn't too bad in Deep Impact IMO. And I thought she was rather good in Flirting with Disaster. Am I missing something? Why all the antagonism? Or, have I just made it all up? :b

    Hmm, I had got the same impression Paul had, that she was unpopular, the flaming against her seemed to peak with Jurrasic park III and The family fan, although I couldn't see why she was so bad in those movies either. It seems to me sometimes though that if people don't like a certain movie, they tend to lay all the blame on a few actors, and Teo Leoni got more than her fair share of criticism for a while.

    That's my recollection at least.

    For what it's worth, I love everything about that girl. I watch "The Family Man" at least once every 6 months just so I can imagine MYSELF married to that beautiful woman.

    I feel like Evan does, and might even have to buy "Family Man" just for the same reasons... [​IMG] I envy David Duchovny alot.

    My wife has a theory about this (she despises Tea Leoni by the way). She thinks there are female celbrities that women tend to like, and ones that women tend to hate but men still love.

    Tea Leoni is on her list of men like her/women hate her. Her reasoning is that she just has "bitch aura." She freely admits it may add up to jealousy, but that doesn't explain some of the women on her lists. For example:

    Men Love/Women Hate
    Pamela Anderson
    Jessica Alba
    Carmen Electra

    Women and Men love:
    Gillian Anderson
    Sarah Michelle Gellar
    Sandra Bullock

    She can't verbalize her theory any better than that, but I think it has some credence.

    There obvious differences between the two groups. Members of the first are all body and seemingly little else, while members of the second have much more going for them. Women, just like men prefer the latter.

    Did you guy's see her in Bad Boys!? [​IMG]
    She also did a t.v. movie a few years ago called The Counterfeit Contessa and she was drop dead gorgeous in that, and very good too. And forget The Naked Truth! Did you see that short lived series she did a few years back called Flying Blind!? [​IMG]

    Her performance is DEEP IMPACT rates as all-time-worst. Have you ever noticed she never opens her mouth when she talks? She mumbles in every movie she is in.[​IMG]

    I've always liked her work, although I tend to believe that a broadcast journalist would enunciate far better than she does in Deep Impact.

    I personally love her legs. She isn't the greatest actress, but IMO her legs make up for that [​IMG]

    I've never liked her much, but I've never disliked her much either. She looks way too much like Tom Cruise for me to be comfortable watching her though (I think I posted a thread about that a long time ago in the Movies section). [​IMG]
